Hailing from Lincolnton, North Carolina, ION BRITTON have gained a cult status through the years, due to their classic legendary 4-song EP released back in 1987, entitled "Eat Metal". The original EP was released in 1000 copies and since then has become a highly sought after collector's item.
With pride we present to you the official re-issue of the EP, that will be available on limited CD and LP. This CD version contains 16-page booklet, loaded with photos, band story and lyrics. It features previously unreleased bonus tracks, which are digitally remastered to ensure maximum listening quality.
For every U.S. metal fan of the 80's, this is definitely one of the most anticipated 2016 reissues!
This band was formed during the 1977 in Toronto, Ontario. Rapid Tears has always been ahead of their time, offering up a good mix of rock and early metal, influenced by NWOBHM, that hasn’t lost any of its punch with the passage of time. These guys weren't afraid of playing fast, with an alarmingly crude production that gives it a dose of credibility and proves these guys had studied their British counterparts well. Songs like the fast opener "Survival", the anthem "Headbang", the epic "Tomorrow" and the hard rock influences of "Keep Runnin'", worth listening to. The American heavy metal passes here too.
